Inglewood City Council Approves NFL Stadium

The Inglewood City Council agreed to build a new 80,000-seat stadium, ATVN's Marc Sallinger and Kate Flexter report.

The Inglewood City Council Tuesday night unanimously approved a $2 billion plan to build an 80,000-seat NFL stadium. The plan includes St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke as a partner. But there's still no certainty that the Rams will return to Los Angeles. Plus, the city still needs the NFL's blessing for a team to move to Los Angeles.

Most residents and business owners are enthusiastic about the new stadium. 

"It's very exciting!" said local business owner Dagem Manugeta. "Small businesses need more people," he added. 

There are some dissenters though who are concerned with increased traffic and property prices.

"There's going to be congestion. There's just so many things that this stadium's going to bring" said Inglewood resident Joesph Taylor. "It's going to be really, really bad."  

Despite some doubts, the City Council insists this new stadium will bring economic benefits to the city. Other Southern California cities like Carson are debating proposals for bringing an NFL team to the Los Angeles area, including a proposal for a stadium in Carson.
